I am obsessed with this foundation. Generally I don't like to wear foundation every day, I just put a little BB Cream and concealer and call it a day. However, this foundation blends so seamlessly, makes my skin look so flawless and feels so silky smooth, I can't resist wearing it! I apply with a sponge for every day, but with a flattop brush it looks amazing and airbrushed. The pump makes it easy to apply to the back of your hand before blending with a brush or sponge. The colors are great, even with my yellow undertones (most makeup is too pink), I could find a match. I love this foundation, and would definitely buy again!
Best foundation ever! My HG of all products, I love this foundation!! I have dry, sensitive skin & this foundation doesn't irritate my skin at all. It's build-able, so perfect for minimal coverage (for heading to class or work) and full coverage (for those wild nights out). This foundation looks so natural on the skin and shows up beautifully in pictures. I apply it with a damp beauty blender and it makes my skin appear flawless. As for packaging, I love the pump but wish it was removable (to get the very last product when you're reaching the end) and after having it for a while the cap seems to pop off in my makeup bag (very annoying). It could be cheaper but you get what you pay for, I feel like it's worth the investment (my last bottle lasted me a good 4.5 months or so).
Also, a big plus for all the shades it comes in!
I haven't found a MUFE product that I didn't like. There is a trick to applying the HD Foundation...It must be applied over a compatible primer, if not, you're going to get terrible wear and results. This is why I gave it four stars instead of five, it's not all-purpose primer friendly. This MUFE HD foundation is water and silicone based and needs the same water/silicone based primer. If used with a oil, moisturizing, or all-purpose primer, it will not wear well and will oxidize. Used with MUFE HD primer or another brand of water/silicone based primer it is outstanding in coverage and wear. I blend with damp cosmetic sponge as I have found that MUFE foundations take quite a bit of time to apply with a brush stippling technique. If you use MUFE Mat Velvet+, probably should stay with that foundation as I find it still superior to the new MUFE HD Foundation.
I have nice skin with very few blemishes, I usually don't need concealer. This foundation covers up nicely without looking too heavy
And yet, there is something that doesn't do it for me. I'm not always pleased with the finish this foundation gives. It doesn't last very long either. The only remarkably good thing I can think of is the color range.
I'm really disappointed especially since I payed a great amount of money for this. Not buying a again. It's plain average and not worth the price.
Wow, really disappointed with this. On the back of my hand it looked great. It's a great colour, great texture, great coverage. On my face, though, it's a complete disaster. Shows every imperfection (even on top of many different types of primers, and without). Doesn't last long. Streaky. DOES NOT cover the few spots I have, or the slight redness in my cheeks and around my nose. You have to layer this stuff.
I just...I can't believe I paid $42 for this stuff. If I had a Sephora around I'd return this immediately. However, I was stupid enough to buy this on vacation so I'm stuck with it. Completely regret this. SO disappointed.
By far, this is the worst product I have ever tried.
Okay, actually, exaggeration. The color selection is amazing, I was matched very well, coverage is good..but my overall experience with the product...ugh.
This made me break out like crazy! I actually got cysts and I never get those! Ever, ever, ever. I don't even have sensitive skin!! I was in love with MAC's Studio Fix Powder that almost everyone else broke out from, until I found something better. If I break out, they go away soon, even if I pick at them (of course you still have to deal with getting rid of the spots). But this "HD Foundation"....oh...no. No. This was horrific, physically and emotionally for me. At first, I didn't realize that it was the foundation, and my skin got so bad to the point where I didn't even want to leave the house or socialize with anyone. Somehow it hit me that it might've been the foundation...and thankfully, when I stopped using it, the breakouts stopped.
So onto a possibly more useful evaluation/review of this product:
--- Color choices/matching - good.
--- Packaging - Nice. Comes in a nice glass bottle with a pump and cap.
--- Benefits - Coverage. But on a personal level, none, when all it did was break my non-sensitive skin out.
--- Price - $40, pretty pricey in my book for a foundation not worth even a fraction.
Obviously a lot of people love it, and some people hate it, but this product is definitely a no-go for me.
I read a lot of reviews before put my money on this foundation, because it's gonna be the most expensive foundation I'll ever purchased. And after all the raves that claim this's the HG foundation I decide to try this one.
I've oily/combination and with right foundation my oily skin is controllable. But not this one, it look perfect at first 10-15 minutes after that awful things happened, it oxidized on me I look darker and my skin look super oily, definitely not in a dewy way.
I'm so disappointed. If you have oily skin I suggest you think twice before trying this one. My good old Revlon Colorstay even works better than this one IMHO.
If you only need a foundation for photo shooting days (in air-condition studio) this's still a good choice. Since I found it photograph well, I'm photogenic while wearing this foundation. But in daily life that I've to running around, working or even going to a party , it fail to do that for me.
Looks beautiful in pictures and fairly good color match! The cap to the package always falls off in my purse or in a makeup bage. The downside is that is transfers and doesn't stay well - I've even tried with powder. Ex: If you blow your nose, almost all the makeup comes off on the tissue. Really love the result but staying power not great. Also tried wearing this in warmer weather and seemed to melt fairly quickly. The 120 shade is good but little yellow. 125 was too dark.
I tried the Matte Velvet but found it way too drying, the light color was too light and dark was too dark - each of the shades to appear almost gray on my skin :(
Best foundation for highlighting and contouring! Looks beautiful, packaging is great and colours are spot on.. Not too yellow and not too pink! Finally!! I wouldn't use this as a daytime make up I use this specifically for contouring.. Only downside is that it's not available in the UK :( and I'm running low!
